Doctor Strange 2 Theory Explains Baron Mordo Post Credits in 2016 Movie

As Phase 4 continues into 2022, Doctor Strange 2 is one of the most prominent additions to the Marvel Cinematic Universe. After starring as the master magician in the 2016 solo feature Doctor Strange, the hero went on to play supporting parts in four additional live-action films until his solo sequel, Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness, was released this year on 6th May.

Along with Benedict Cumberbatch, there was only one version of Baron Mordo in the movie, although it wasn’t the one from the first Doctor Strange film. It was the Illuminati’s variant of the sorcerer. Mordo, the long-haired Sorcerer Supreme of his reality, never turned his back on the order as his Main counterpart did. However, both MCU incarnations of the character have one thing in common: they despise Doctor Strange. Furthermore, there is a major unresolved storyline from the film’s second post-credits scene that, if explored, might have huge repercussions.

Baron Mordo’s Post Credits explained

Chiwetel Ejiofor’s Karl Mordo located Benjamin Bratt’s Jonathan Pangborn and removed his strength from his body in the second post-credits scene from 2016’s Doctor Strange. Mordo told Pangborn at the end of the scene that he was doing this because the world had “too many sorcerers.” Mordo made it very clear that he was abandoning the sorcerers at Kamar-Taj in favor of his own ethically dubious goal to exterminate magic-wielders all across the world after leaving Doctor Strange and Wong on the streets of Hong Kong. However, there have been no hints pointing to where this cliffhanger moment would go in the future since that post-credits sequence at the conclusion of 2016.

In Doctor Strange 2, after Doctor Strange’s death, Baron Mordo becomes the Sorcerer Supreme on Earth-838. Though he has enough power to be a member of the Illuminati council, he lacks the level of wizardry that fans may expect, making it difficult to assess his potency.  However, this Mordo is likely to have far more multiverse knowledge and mystical power than his 616 counterparts. In Marvel Comics, Mordo is one of Doctor Strange’s most powerful foes, and it appears that this tradition continues in the MCU multiverse.
